OK, so you KNEW I lied!

How could I be so harsh and NOT tell you what I have been up to, or as Grumpy asked:  Where have I been hiding? Here’s the blow-by-blow: Mikey met me at Cheese Cake Factory for my Birthday Lunch.  He came walking in with the flowers from the opening picture and the card above.  Both…

OMG …. And Hold the presses

We took my jeans back … yeah the new ones …. and the size 10 and size 8 fit snug, but comfortable.  I think I am flipping over here.  Pics to come later.  I don’t even know what to do with myself.  How do you act when you can wear such a small size??  I…

I’m puny!

    I feel all puny today. I think I am going to go outside and see if the sun doesn’t make me smile or rejuvinate me. I kinda feel like I have a summer cold.  I sure hope NOT!  I hate being SICK! Oh … on a positive note … my jeans have to…

Yellow sheet? Brown towel? That is my question…

Why do I have a picture of two towels?  Do I have a towel fetish?  NOPE!  They are, however, extremely important to me.  Throughout my battle with obesity, there are several things/situations that have brought shame and discouragement that were so overwhelming that I was not sure how I would get through them.  As with…

Stepping back in time …

Going back home to Louisiana is, as I have said before, equal to time travel for me. Today, I am talking more about memory lane.  The beautiful Bayous, giant moss filled trees, and cotton fields awaken the kid in me.  These surroundings cause me to remember all the years spent playing with my cousins. Very…

The Pros and Cons

  I’m sitting here today, Sunday, wondering.  Pondering life.  What am I wondering, you might ask?  Well, I am nervously waiting the return of several important e-mails … I am wondering what these people think about my ideas.  I am wondering how I will do when I transition to food in a few weeks.  ……

Dance Trauma–or Not?
